More '76 awesomeness; Dr. Hunter S - your matrix here is just exactly perfect. This FM sbd has always been crystal-clear, but you've really enhanced it a lot - the crowd and echo is present but natural and unobtrusive. Compare this to so many other bands' live releases, with the cheering so obviously spliced in!

A great show all-around. Love the rare Jed opener. I do think the Supplication jam comes off best, but give credit to Cassidy's short tease they pull back oh-so-deliberately - the band knew how to develop jams slowly, over a long period of time. Check those fall '71 Playins, for example.

Set 2 has, at its core, two wonderful mini-suites - the first Playin' > Wheel > Playin' can easily stack up against the beginning of 6/9's set 2 as one of the hottest jams of the year - they go easy on the Wheel (listen to that heartbreaking opening by Jerry!), unlike in the 80s-90s when it sometimes felt too hurried...but it is the jam emerging back into the Main Ten here that is the real core and heart of this show - disco-jazz fusion here, folks. I don't recall them playing anything this slick and rhythmic in '77; '76 has light footing, for sure!

I'd stick with this source for this show, if you want a little ambience. England has Tolkien; America has the Dead.

Fantastic show! Sound is a perfect Matrix and the Playin>Wheel>Playin Jam is as good as it gets. The space is very 74-ish. Well done!

I love this matrix! You know its gonna be a truly great show when there is a rockin Tennessee Jed.

Love Phil's tribute to "the vast audio radiance" classic.

Thanks Mr. Seamons for all your hard work, I personally find your matrices purely enjoyable.

Subject: Why We Love This Band
1st off, this is some exceptional work my Mr. Seamons. The mix is spot on here. Great SBD source combined with just enough AUD to really fill out the sound and put you in the building, but without too much distracting chatter. And the show? Well, if you look at all the reviews for the other sources, you'll get the idea of just how good this is. June 1976 was one of their great runs, stacking up one great show after another. If nothing else, just let yourself melt into the Playin>Wheel>Playin trifecta. The jam out of Wheel into Playin is friggin' amazing. I can't recommend this one highly enough. If you love great shows presented in a great matrix format, look no further.
